Premiere Pro, 23.98 fps timeline to DVD

I have a file that I'm exporting a 35 min documentary out of Premiere Pro, using the MPEG2-DVD settings. The time-line is 23.98 fps. I would like to know what would be the best quality settings when exporting? Or, will these preset settings be ok "as is"(?), as I know some of the presets are already decently set up fro you. I would like to encode the best quality possible, but preset is fine, if that's the answer.

Second question: When I export a small test and import it into DVDSP, it displays a file frame-rate at 29.97, even though it's really 23.98, etc. (If I remember correctly, I think this is just a "quirk" with DVDSP.)? It should burn out at 23.98 fps onto the DVD, is this correct? I guess I can create an "image file", and open the image in VLC player to check frame-rate.

I've also heard and remember back of another method used (back in the FCP7 days), where people were exporting "master files" out of FCP7, then using ffmpegx or Sorenson Squeeze to encode higher quality mpeg2 files for DVD. I'm assuming Premiere Pro will (w/ their built-in encoder) encode the best or highest quality file just fine. (I normally output out of Premiere for everything, but haven't done a ton of recent encoding for DVDs, so).

Any thoughts?

If you still have DVDSP you may have Compressor also. Try exporting a self-contained movie file from Premiere and use Compressor to write your m2v file. For a short 35 minute file use CBR at the highest rate. Should fit into a Single sided DVD-R.

That's an assumption that matches my experience. Back in the FCP7 days, I would have people provide me a ProRes 422 export to encode into MPEG-2 with AME because they were unhappy with the quality of the encodes from Compressor 4. These days, they all do a comparable level of quality.

Thanks for the advice. I ended up exporting both a Pro Res 422 out of Premiere for a master file, and also exporting an M2V, and they look great.
